Default K-Meleon is not the poor sibling!

Quote:
Last but not least is K-Meleon, a slimmed down cousin of Firefox that's optimized for Windows. Of the four browsers reviewed here, K-Meleon is the quickest loading and, along with Opera, the fastest for surfing. There are only a limited number of add-ons and plug-ins available, so you are pretty well limited to the features available in the standard product. If you're the type of person who prefers performance to bells and whistles, then you should definitely try K-Meleon.
I wonder if the reviewer checked out K-Meleon. It does not have thousands of extensions as does Firefox, even Flock, which can use many Firefox extensions, or even SeaMonkey, which has a lot of extensions, but it has the necessary ones, especially for security.

My default is SeaMonkey, but I use multiple browsers, including Flock, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and K-Meleon.

I have K-Meleon 1.5.4. These are the extensions that I chose:

Adblock Plus
ClearFlash
LiveIP
NoScript
RefControl

UnmaskParasites
WOTRatings

Mozilla-Dictionaries
SMS-Service

ActiveX4WMP
Bandwidths
Enforce-SavePassword

Note that K-Meleon has the necessary addons, ones I have in the other Gecko browsers, save BetterPrivacy, but it has ClearFlash which does fill somewhat the void.

It now has an efficient, easy to use extension manager, so the difficult, often confusing to the usual end user is in the past.

Most of the essential extensions, or equivalents, are the same for all the actively developed Gecko browsers.

SeaMonkey:

Adblock Plus
BBCodeXtra
BetterPrivacy
ChatZilla
Cert Viewer Plus
Certificate Patrol
CS Lite
Display Mail User Agent

DOM Inspector
IsAdmin
JavaScript Debugger
Lightning
Minimize To Tray Plus
NoScript
Scribefire
Session Manager
WOT


Firefox:

Adblock Plus
Add Bookmark Here
BetterPrivacy
Cookie Monster

Download Statusbar
Java Console 6.0.20
Java Console 6.0.16
Java Quick Starter
Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant
Move Media Player
NoScript
RefControl

Session Manager
WOT


Flock:

Adblock Plus
BetterPrivacy
Certificate Patrol
CS Lite

IsAdmin
NoScript
RefContro
l
WorldIP
WOT

SeaMonkey wasn't even mentioned in the Browser review.

Default K-meleon

Switched to K-meleon recently & have been most impressed as it runs faster & smoother on my system than Opera which used to be my No1 choice. I wouldn't have known about it had it been for this site so thanks & keep up the good work.
